‘Someone Like Me’ Art Competition

We took part in the Someone Like Me Art Competition again this year. The competition is sponsored by the Department of Justice and Equality and is aimed at promoting positive attitudes towards disability in schools and celebrating individual difference. Drumraney N.S. is an inclusive school where the participation and opinions of all pupils are valued.
While completing the relevant lessons, the children discussed how we each have unique personality traits, qualities, strengths, limitations, interests and abilities and how we each have an equally valid and important contribution to make to our school and to the wider world.
The proud peacock loves to show off its beautiful array of elaborate feathers. We too, should be proud of each of our talents and should enjoy sharing them with others and using them to help and encourage one another.
Each child designed a selection of beautiful peacock feathers. Each feather represents a talent or virtue that they are particularly proud to possess. Like the peacock, Drumraney N.S. is very proud to show off the wide variety of talents and good qualities we see in the children every day. The combination of each of their individual talents really paints a pretty picture!
